Welcome to Year 3 and 4!
We have five classes in Lower Key Stage 2 and our teachers are Mrs Allin, Mrs Watson, Mr Blake, Mrs Pearce and Mrs Jones.
You will find us situated on either side of our fabulous library, enjoying our learning; having fun, exploring new things and developing as life-long learners. Throughout the year we will be investigating the rampaging Romans, Shackleton’s Antarctica and enterprising Egyptians. It's an action packed journey filled with exciting and memorable learning opportunities.
“I like doing the work, especially our topic work as its fun!” – Chloe
“I like coming to school because I really like working” – Lucie

It was so lovely to see Maple class sketching spring daffodils this morning, that we wanted to share it with you.
The children were quietly drawing and really concentrating on their pictures. Here are a few of them hard at work:
After another round of toast and cereal for breakfast, today, we took part in all our adventurous activities! We zoomed down the hill snow tubing, hurtled round the go-kart track and sharpened our aim at the archery range.
Toni drifted round corners and showed no fear at the go-karts, even the instructors said she was crazy! All of Year 4 showed teamwork and endurance during snow tubing by helping each other up a very steep hill and we saw a record amount of bulls-eyes at the archery range.
In the evening, children successfully showed their tidying prowess during the dreaded room inspection. As a reward, we had a hearty beef stew for dinner.
Before lights out, we ventured in to the woods for a campfire and a sing a long lead by Mr Jenkins. We sang loud and proud and went to bed with brilliant memories!
Home time tomorrow!

“This is the best school trip I’ve ever been on!” Kaycee
“The go-karting was epic!” Toni
Group 1 are back with us from Lodge Hill and we think a lot of them have a dose of the 'Lodge Hill Blues'. They all had so much fun, that they are finding it hard to get back to normality!
We've managed to get hold of a few more photos from Day 1, which we are sharing here to hopefully cheer the children up!
Today was change over day at Lodge Hill. As one half of Year 4 started their journey for a fun filled adventure the other half were getting ready to travel home.
Once everyone was at Lodge Hill, the children went on a walk. Those who were already onsite, were showing the new ones around. Exploration was the aim of the game!!!!!
After lunch, the children started with some orienteering which required map reading skills and team work. Geography lessons were given by Mr Blake, children were quizzed on where the Sun rises from!
Later was the moment they had all been waiting for, they found out which room they were in. Shouts of glee were heard on each floor.
We then went into the forest to play some games of “Back to Base” and many more. Dinner, was a delicious Curry, that certainly raised a few eyebrows.Pudding was Angel delight.
The children are now getting ready to go back outside and play some more games in the dark before hot chocolate and bed.
James said “All the activities we have done so far were fabulous”
“Playing Cops and Robbers was fantastic” said Izzy
The other Izzy says “The best game was Back to Base because it was so easy!
After a good night’s sleep and a fantastic breakfast of cereal and endless toast, we embarked on a day of exciting activities around Lodge Hill.
We have sharpened our Robin Hood skills during archery, driven to success on the sand-carts and spotted future winter Olympians in the snow-tubing.
“I loved the sand-carts because you could go really fast!” says Jasmine.
Scarlett says “I really enjoyed the archery, I loved learning a new skill!”
“I liked the height and speed of the snow tubing, it was really exciting!” says Leah.
